Interhack Security Experts Train Health Care Professionals

Interhack announces its HIPAA Security Rule Training.

COLUMBUS, Ohio. September 15, 2003 -- Interhack announces the availability of its HIPAA Security Training for health care and health insurance industries.

Long recognized for its expertise in information assurance and staffed by computer scientists with both research and formal teaching experience, Interhack is uniquely capable to help information technology and administrative professionals understand the Security Rule of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

“Consultants small and large have smelled opportunity in HIPAA,” commented Matt Curtin, Interhack's Founder. “When it comes to understanding what exactly the HIPAA Security Rule means and how it can be implemented rationally, covered entities do well to question the credentials of anyone who claims to offer guidance. When considering someone's training services, go ahead and ask, ‘What claim do you have to information security expertise?’ Compliance failures have real consequences. Accept nothing less than the best expertise available.”

Interhack's HIPAA Security training helps working professionals to understand not only what the Security Rule means and how it applies to them, but how they can achieve compliance along with their business objectives.

Available courses include Security Rule Implementation, Security Reminders, Administrative Safeguards, Physical Safeguards, and Technical Safeguards. Interhack also offers a Security Awareness program, helping everyone in the organization to understand a different security issue each month in an easy-to-read format.

In each case, these courses are designed to provide minimal disruption to a busy professional's schedule. The Security Reminders course is one half-day, and all others are one full day. We provide enough information to understand the concepts and principles, giving students just what they need to be able to make good decisions when confronted with specific situations back in their work environments.
